Wynns Coonawarra Estate Michael Shiraz 2012

Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s best-of-vintage Shiraz.
The first Michael (then named Michael Hermitage) was a one-off make from
the 1955 vintage, made after proprietor David Wynn noticed the outstanding
quality of the wine from two particular barrels and ordered them to be bottled
separately. This wine – named after Wynn’s young son – is a legend of the
Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael Hermitage
still offering an outstanding wine experience.
Revived with the superb 1990 vintage, the fruit used for this wine comes
from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is made only in years when
the grapes are of extraordinarily high quality.
